after her presentation at the October 
assembly in the M.R.H.S. auditorium. 




Dr. Janice Voss 

M,RH,S« 1972 

Opace 1 j)9o 

The 1972 FALCON Yearbook listed her this way: Jan- 
ice Voss, Wilbraham: Debating, Mathletes, Chess 
Club, As Schools Match Wits, Library Aide, One Act Plays, 
Spring Play, Band. In June '93 she suddenly became Hsted 
this way: Dr. Janice Voss , Minnechaug's First Astronaut. 
In October '93 Janice received a hero's welcome when she 
came back to M.R.H.S. for an assembly. There she credited 
much of her success to Minnechaug and her former teach- 
ers and advisors. Several of her teachers sat on the stage 
with her as she was honored, and later as she proudly 
described her NASA training and adventures on land 
(survival training), in the sky (flying in the zero-gravity 
simulating "vomit comet"), and finally in space as a mis- 
sion specialist on the Space Shuttle Endeavour. After grad- 
uating from Minnechaug in 1972 Dr. Voss earned a B.S.in 
engineering science from Purdue University, an M.S. in 
electrical engineering, and a doctorate in aeronau- 
tics/astronautics from M.I.T.

Will one of them be our 
next astronaut? 



Liftoff of Space Shuttle STS-57 oc- 
curred at 9:07:22 a.m., June 21, 1993 at 
the Kennedy Space Center. This was the 
fourth flight of the Space Shuttle En- 
deavour, and ... the first flight with a 
Minnechaug graduate on board. 




Dr. Voss 




With a camera and cable 
in hand, astronaut Janice 
Voss, mission specialist, 
floats through a special 
tunnel into the 
SPACEHAB module 
where she and the five oth- 
er NASA astronauts con- 
ducted various experi- 
ments. 



With SPACEHAB in the 
foreground and the black- 
ness of space behind him 
is Peter Wisoff on the mo- 
bile foot restraint of the

Mile, after mile, after mile! crusin' with 
Mr. Barrett, and don't forget that this 
has had to be one of the worst winters we've 
had in a while. Would you want to spend your 
afternoon belted in next to some wild-eyed 
junior with aspirations towards the demo- 
lition derby championships? At least we can 
be grateful that our friends at "Riggs" have 
kept us supplied with safe comfortable cars. 




Mr. Barrett accepts another new vehicle

Junior 
Dramatists 



The FALCON Yearbook staff has heard 
that we should watch this bunch of 
juniors for big things in the future. With 
just a Httle investigation we found out why! 
It seems the dramtic arts have found a 
thriving home in the Class of 1995. 



Kristin Haynes was featured this 
year in the One-Act play Inner Circle 
which she, "really enjoyed", because 
it "dealt with reahties". 



Paul Root starred this year in 
the stirring drama Inner Cir- 
cle and appeared in last years' 
One-Act hit The Ugly Duck- 
ling. 




J.P. Reader has appeared in 
The Ugly Duckling, Wizard of 
Oz, My Son the Prince, and 
June Groom. Many of us re- 
member his "royal" perfor- 
mance at the Peach Festival. 




Brent Burnette includes in his 
credits parts in Inner Circle, 
Wizard of Oz, Dracula, and 
June Groom.

THE SKY'S THE LIMIT? At one time we aU 
believed that! But, this year of space explo- 
ration changed that belief when one of our 
graduates, Janice Voss, 1972, a member of the En- 
deavour mission shared her experiences in the uni- 
verse with us. Your limits are your own; there are no 
boundaries, and you can be anything you want. Your 
ambition, motivation, skills, decisions, and dreams 
will determine your limits. This yearbook is part of 
your life and traces important events and people who 
helped you to prepare for your future. I hope you will 
remember Minnechaug with special feelings and look 
upon your high school days as a tirne of great change, 
learning, and fun. Take all your experiences and enter 
the world with confidence and a willingness to meet 
the challenges of the future. Know no limits! 
Congratulations to the Class of 1 994.

Trivia from the 1972 Sports sea- 
son (Dr. Voss's senior year at 
M.R.H.S.): The field hockey team 
went 12-0-2! Both the boys' and girls' 
swim teams won Western Mass. ti- 
tles! Giris' basketball went 18-0! The 
gymnasts went undefeated and took 
2nd at Western Mass, and, our foot- 
ball team, "the Big Green Machine", 
was led to an 8-1 Championship sea- 
son by Coaches Hal Miller, Paul 
Deslauriers, and Russ Holt.

Unlimited Effort 



This seasons Falcon Football team had a big 
rebuilding year. After losing a fine backfield 
of graduating seniors, Coach Cauley had some 
tough work to do. Chosen for these all important 
spots were Charlie Luvera (Running Back), Jamie 
Mitchell (Running Back), and Brian Maloney 
(Quarterback). Being incoming sophomores, they had 
to earn a lot of respect, and did. As this years seniors 
look at their season, they could say they had a great 
four years. Ken Myers (Center/Line Backer) was one 
of the key players as was Scott Korzon. Mark Haryasz 
was there for many a key play, and when the team 
needed that extra "push", it was skillfully provided by 
Scott Liese and Ryan Noonan. New coaches arrived 
to help Cauley this season. Bill Griffith, Scott Laford, 
and Dave Wearing all contributed their efforts to the 
team. Dedication was the motto all around. If you 
weren't on top of things you knew you could lose your 
position. The JV team represented us well and the 
freshmen finished the season with an outstanding 5 
— 3 record.

Aiming for Success 




After losing 1 2 seniors to graduation last year, 
the girls' soccer teams' outlook seemed bleak, 
but we didn't let the odds beat us. We pulled 
together with lots of teamwork, and a great attitude 
just in time for the first game. With our confidence 
high after a hard fought tie with Central, things 
looked great until we met the Panthers. Not only did 
we suffer a dissappointing loss, but wound up with 
three girls in the hospital. Unfortunately, that wasn't 
the last time that injuries would plague the team. By 
the end of the season, only two varsity players hadn't 
suffered an injury of some significance, but, we keep 
on playing. Led by Kim Kisner's non-stop scoring and 
incredible goals from sweeper Elana Kingsbury, the 
varsity made its' way to the Western Mass. tour- 
nament for the first time since 1985, an incredible 
accomplishment. The future looks very promising for 
next year with some great JV talent coming off a 
fabulous 11-1-5 year and a strong freshmen team up 
and coming.

Shooting for the Stars 



Entering into another year of Minnechaug Boys' 
Soccer, some were leery as to how well the team 
could do. Having lost a number of starting seniors, 
the Falcons were immedietly threatened with how much 
depth they would have. The season began with a heart- 
breaking loss to Ludlow. But as the season wore on they 
found themselves in the tournament picture. Their hopes 
of making the tournament were almost dashed late in the 
season when "should-have-been" wins slipped through 
their fingers against Chicopee and Westfield. The boys 
rallied in their last two games to defeat East Longmeadow 
by the score of 8 — 0, and Chicopee Comprehensive by the 
tally of 5 — 0. This led to their first birth in eight years into 
the Western Mass. Soccer Tournament. Unfortunately, 
their first draw was second in the nation, Cathedral, who 
went on to win the state title. The boys placed four mem- 
bers on the All-League: Seth Marlatt, Tom DeNucci, Eric 
Dolaher, and Greg Moore. Also, at the conclusion of the 
season they had four players in the league points standings: 
Karl Labadorf, Mike Nordstrom, Jeff McFarlane, and Seth 
Marlatt. It looks as though the Falcons will really impress 
everyone in the coming years. Hopefully there is another 
Western Mass. birth in their future leading to a cham- 
pionship!

The Minnechaug Field Hockey team knew 
that this year would be one of their tough- 
est. With only two seniors, and six return- 
ing juniors, the varsity team looked hopefully to 
the sophomores and freshmen. This new young 
team was certainly faced with a formidable chal- 
lenge. But the Falcons worked hard and gave every 
team they faced a run for their money. Every single 
player worked tremendously on and off the field. 
All this constant work created a bond that wove the 
Varsity and JV teams tightly together. The raw 
numbers cannot reflect the true success that these 
two teams had during this challenging year. With 
both good times and bad behind us, we look hope- 
fully to next season. We know that these hard 
fought lessons will help us form two great teams 
certain of many future victories. Watch out for us 
next year!

Soaring to the Top 



The Girls' Gymnastics team pulled together and 
soared to the top this season by working extra 
hard to beat those teams that challenged their 
abilities last year. Our teams goal was to avenge last 
years' loss and to break the school and Western Mass. 
record. We did just that. With each girl striving to do her 
best, the team finished with a stunning 20 — un- 
defeated season, and the championship title. The gym- 
nasts did break the records with a 138.25, the highest 
meet score ever, and we also won the Western Mass. 
"Spirit Award. The team will lose three high scoring 
seniors; Liz Agnew, Sharon Belcher, and Breanne 
L'Heureux who were all named to the All W.Mass. first 
team along with junior Keri Boduch. Bree L'Heureux 
had career high scores of 8.95 on floor and 8.7 on bars. 
Sharon Belcher had career highs of 8.8 on bars and 8.7 
on floor. Liz Agnew placed first in everything at 
W.Mass. and broke two school records, on the bars and 
the floor. Next years' team should be just as talented 
with all the returning upperclassmen and incoming 
freshmen. Hopefully they can please the fans by keeping 
the W.Mass. title.

Unlimited Distance 



he Distance Dynamos maintained their win- 
ning tradition again in 1 993. The boys' team 
captured the Valley League Championship by 
finishing the regular season undefeated, 9 — 0, for the 
tloifd year in a row. We took top honors at the Pioneer 
Valley Individual Championships in November. 
Mark Tromblay took 7th place in the meet, followed 
closely by Matt Laraway (12th), Kevin Sheran (14th), 
and Adam Winseck (25th). The girls' team did not 
fare quite as well in terms of their record, but that 
does not reflect the tremendous amount of time and 
effort the girls put into their running. Under the 
expert coaching of "All-American Runner" Kristin 
Ihle, the girls came together and improved their run- 
ning with every practice. There were many highlights 
in '93 for both teams. Two Falcons broke school 
records: Courtney Trombly eclipsed Minnechaug's 
course record with a time of 19:53, and Kevin Sheran 
shattered Chicopee State Park's previous best with a 
time of 16:50. Sheran was also selected to the All 
Western Mass. First Team. And let's not forget the 
selection of brother-sister duo Brendan and Courtney 
Trombly as TV 22's Co-Athletes of the week.

Unlimited Success 



Some might have said a few years ago that the Girls' 
Basketball team was the joke of the M.R.H.S. com- 
munity. How things have changed! For the second 
consecutive year the Falcons have won the Tri-County 
League Championship, going undefeated in the league once 
again. However, it's not the Tri-County dominance that 
has earned us the long overdue respect as much as the 
impressive home victories against perrenial powerhouse 
Palmer and the 1992 Div.I Vermont State Champi- 
ons,Brattleboro Union. With an 1 8-2 overall record for the 
Varsity, and 1 5-2 record for the J V team with some very 
lopsided JV near-shutout scores (69-2,62-7,62-8) and an 
average varsity victory margin of 35.6 points we Falcons 
are going strong! As was noted many times, the strength of 
our teams was our depth and a balanced scoring attack. 
This years teams can be proud of their accomplishments, 
with a work ethic and desire that has revived the girls' 
basketall program which will be strong for years to come.

Unlimited Heart 



The Varsity Boys' Basketball team comprised 
of seniors Chris Kerbel, Bill Gagnon, Jay Saun 
Beamon, Scott Liese, Jeff Burr, Captain Mark 
Tromblay, juniors Mike Nordstrom, Mike Disa, Alex 
Leritz, and Steve Robare struggled to a 1-19 record. 
The team was plagued with misfortune culminating 
with the serious car accident suffered by Mike Nord- 
strom. However, the team refused to give up and 
displayed tremendous heart, dedicating the remain- 
der of the season to "Nordy". There were some close, 
tough battles fought away and on our home turf. 
Looking to the JV season record of 7-13, and the 
Freshman record of 12-6, hopefully, next season, luck 
will again be on the Falcon side of the court for our 
varsity hoopsters.

"Do It Up 



} } 



The Minnechaug Cheerleaders started off this summer 
with both Varsity and Junior Varsity attending the 
UCA summer camp at Amherst College. We went on 
to cheer for the football teams in the fall and the basketball 
teams in the winter with much help and guidance from 
Coaches Lx)is Mitchell and Jenni Mercure. This year the J.V. 
team began something new by competing along with the 
Varsity in the competitions. The teams both look forward to a 
successful season with many wins, particularly with the var- 
sity being the defending Western Massachusetts Champions.

Reaching the Stars 



Once again the Minnechaug Swim Team had an 
outstanding season! Both the boys and girls 
went almost undefeated, with the girls winning 
another Western Mass. title. Captains Dena Deforge and 
Jamie Galvin have won that title all four of their years at 
M.R.H.S. The senior boys: Evan Coppola, Jeff King, 
Rob McDiarmid, Captain Bryan McFarland, Ryan Mill- 
er, Steve Piecuch, and Cory Reddington have also ex- 
celled as Falcon swimmers! The team was lucky to get 
some great new freshmen this year. Trisha Gelinas, 
Jessie Smith, and Mike Leary were among the many 
promising new additions to the team. And we can't 
forget all of those talented sophomores and juniors with- 
out whom the team could never have done so well. Trish 
Duffy and Kara Lavoie continue to swim with tre- 
mendous speed while Shana Smith and Kathy Zim- 
mermann rule the boards! So, once again, it has been 
another fabulous season for Minnechaug's Falcon swim- 
mers and divers. 



Shouting support from the 
side, teamwork is a key to our 
swimming success.

Falcons Flying High 



For the first time in ten years the Falcons qualified 
for the Western Mass. Tournament. We ended 
our regular season with a big win (7-1) over 
Agawam, finishing with an 1 1-4-3 record and riding an 
emotional high heading into the tournament. We 
grabbed the #6 seed in the tournament securing a first 
round bye, but unfortunately getting a quaterfinal 
matchup versus the #3 seed, West Springfield, who had a 
big score to settle for the two regular season beatings we 
gave them, particularly the recent 6-3 trouncing we 
handed them. In an extremely hard fought game they 
came out on top. West Springfield was also coming off 
an embarassing 12-4 defeat to Amherst, and were just a 
little hungrier than we were. We had to play without 
forward Mark Martinez and Dan McFarland, but we 
still gave them a battle to remember. We had a terrific 
regular season and the Berry Division will be looking out 
for Minnechaug next year!

Top of the Hill 



We ended the regular season with the girls 
placed 3rd and the boys placed 4th in the 
PVIAC League. Captains Mark Fulton, Jus- 
tin Pabis, Laura Bressette, and Allison Tipaldi led us 
well thru those cold practices at Berskire East, on those 1 
hour (each way) bus trips to the slopes, and at the team's 
favorite rest stop for refueling at Taco Bell. Strangely 
enough if we had any problem this year it was too much 
snow! Snow forced us to cancel practices, reschedule 
events, and because of snow, we didn't even get a team 
picture taken! Go figure!

Future Business Leaders 
of America 



FBLA's purpose is to bring busi- 
ness and education together in a 
positive working relationship. The 
national organization offers pro- 
grams and services that create a 
forum in which students, educa- 
tors and business people learn 
about one another. Remember 
though, FBLA is not only about 
business education, but having fun 
and the satisfaction of standing 
back and looking at your accom- 
plishments in group business proj- 
ects.

The Photography Club was formed to 
allow students to take advantage of 
Minnechaug's two well equipped dark- 
rooms and experiment with the art of 
photo making. The club's big annual 
project is supplying the photos for the 
Town/School Picture Calendar. Club 
Advior Mr. Orzulak helps the club 
members take, develop, print, and en- 
large black and white 35mm photos. 



The Cycling Club is new to Minnechaug 
but has already generated alot of interest 
due mainly to club advisor Officer Jeff 
Snow. Many students own bikes and 
ride seriously and expressed a need for 
an organized cycling activity. We see big 
things in the future for this new club. 



The Ham Radio Club is in it's second 
year at M.R.H.S. and has expanded to 
evening classes to include adults and 
middle school students. This year's 
meetings were also delay broadcast on 
WTV Cable Channel 46 to allow mem- 
bers to keep up with all the complex 
information presented. 



The Aquarium Club maintains Min- 
nechaug's aquariums and has plans to 
expand to salt water tanks in the near 
future. This photo shows some of the 
club members with Mr. Balser next to 
the exotic fish tank outside the Power 
Tech room at the end of D-Hall.

The Minnechaug R.H.S. Performing and 
Visual Arts Society is going strong and has 
had another very successful Talent Show. 
Even though the weather didn't want to 
cooperate and the show had to be 
rescheduled there was a strong turnout and 
terrific talent took the stage. The Yearbook 
staff had such a hard time deciding what 
photos to publish that we used all the space 
available, so here, without comment are

Hi A" 




S] 



Project Cope is a weekend of adventure and learning 
with the support of your peers. It is a time when 
your mind deals with the matters at hand, whether it be 
solving problems such as how to get two blindfolded 
people over a log suspended seven feet in the air without 
them touching it, or dealing with your fear of climbing 
as high as the birds on a telephone wire. Nobody deals 
with individual fears on this weekend. You support, 
encourage, and communicate with each other on how 
not to let your fears take over your mind. Then, as the 
adrenalin flows, you take that step and push yourself to 
the edge. In the end, we, as a whole, accomplish more 
than we ever thought possible. If any of this interests 
you, come and learn more about yourself and your 
peers. Come express yourself and speak your mind. Test 
your minds' boundries. You'll be glad that you did!

We of the FALCON Yearbook Staff obviously 
have our Hghter side. We try to handle the 
serious things seriously, but, every so often, we do 
take some "liberties". If we have pictured any of you 
in anything but the best possible way, we figured we 
would take this space to show you a few charming 
photos of the Yearbook Staff to sort of "level the 
playing field", so to speak. You've let us in on some of 
your personal, often lighter moments, and we hope 
you continue to!

With "stars" still in our eyes, we look to the Senior Messages and 
Community Ads! Without this support this yearbook couldn't be 
half the book it is! Again, still "starry-eyed" we dedicate the first page of 
this section to a group of senior messages that the FALCON Yearbook 
Staff voted "Un-official Cute-as-a-button" winneTs for 1993-94! We hope 
you enjoy these next pages as much as we did!

Tom, 

Every Day since May 18, 
1976 is like Christmas for us, 
Winter, spring, summer, or 
fall, you've never been any 
trouble at all. 

You've made us proud and 
honored to see the son, the 
man, the friend, you've 
grown up to be. 
Our wish for you; That all 
your dreams come true, 
As ours did the day we had 
you. 

You represent and exemplify 
all the goodness of the human 
race. 

The proof is written all over 
your face. 

And since you've grown 
smarter, wiser, and taller 
than we, 

We now look up to you and 
say congratulations, 
and thank you for this won- 
derful day. 

We support whatever en- 
deavors you pursue. 
We love you and wish you 
hfe's best. After all; we have 
life's best — You! 
Love, Mom, Dad, & Raisin 
Too,

The year started with numerous, involved goals, pri- 
mary among them was to act on many of your sug- 
gestions. We repeated many favorite features from the 
past and we tried several new things that we want your 
feedback on! We met an important financial goal of keeping 
the book price the same by working hard at selling advertising 
and by taking your paid orders for over 600 '94 FALCON 
Yearbooks. We are very proud of the work we have done on 
and for the book and hope that you enjoy every page. If you 
do have suggestions, let us know, or better yet, join us on the 
'95 FALCON Yearbook Staff! Everyone is welcome to work 
on the book or submit photos for pubUcation. We did finally 
settle on the single goal of bringing a smile to Dr. Voss's face 
and we think we have done that (an engraved Yearbook has 
been sent to Dr. Voss). Once again we are counting pennies to 
try and publish a spring supplement for Sept. '94 delivery, so 
listen for more details!
